Current Connections - Articles 1 & 2

The Flood Solutions Strategy is a 125 page report that aims to help members of the Elk Valley prepare for future floods. It provides a foundational understanding in the hydrology and behaviour of the watershed, future effects of land use and climate change, and flood management strategies that would effectively protect people and critical infrastructure, as well as protect watershed function and wildlife habitat.  However, we know that not everyone has the time to read 125 pages, and so we have broken the report down into bite-sized, tasty articles that are available from the Free Press! 

Check out Current Connections Article 1 to find out about how the natural history and geology of the Elk Valley affects flooding in the region, and check out Article 2 to find out how community has and is responding to flooding in the Elk Valley!
